With conference play heating up, and April - a month that's all about improvement - on the doorstep, I solicited questions on Twitter (@QKessenich) to see what's on people's minds.   National College Lacrosse League @NCLLax: If QK can change just one rule for 2013, what would he add or delete from the NCAA rulebook? QK: The No. 1 rule change on everybody's mind is the shot clock. Shot-clock advocates are growing, but change is a touchy subject. The rules committee works in a two-year cycle, and this offseason offers it the opportunity to enact reform.

Almost two years have passed since the NCAA men's lacrosse rules committee announced it would add a 30-second "timer on" countdown to combat stalling and slow play in men's lacrosse. And in the ensuing seasons, it's become clear that the timer is not a magical cure and that further changes need examination. In a column this week for Inside Lacrosse, analyst and Baltimore Sun contributor Quint Kessenich compares the evolution of lacrosse to that of basketball: The shot clock for professional basketball was invented by Syracuse Nationals owner Danny Biasone following the 1954 season in an attempt to speed up the game and prevent teams from stalling.

Notre Dame is a battle-tested team, and most importantly, the Fighting Irish has averaged 12 goals per game in its recent six-game winning streak. Ranked No. 11 in scoring offense and No. 24 in scoring defense, Notre Dame is a different team than the one that lost, 15-7, to Duke in early April. The Atlantic Coast Conference champions have terrific depth. The Fighting Irish is built for the Memorial Day men's lacrosse championship, and it already experienced the quick turnaround while winning the ACC tournament last month.

On the heels of Johns Hopkins' announcement that the men's lacrosse team would join the Big Ten for the 2015 season, ESPN analyst Quint Kessenich had a few thoughts on the move. Kessenich is a former All-American goalkeeper for the Blue Jays. Do you have any concerns about the program's move to the Big Ten? I have two reservations - as you would with any kind of realignment. The first would be that I believe that teams - whatever the sport - when they change conference, they ultimately play themselves to the level of that conference.

A week after the bracket for the NCAA tournament was revealed, the first-round outcomes appeared to validate the selection committee's seeding decisions. Seven of the eight seeded teams emerged victorious this past weekend, and Maryland's 13-6 rout of No. 8 seed North Carolina isn't considered an upset in many corners. But four of the favorites found themselves trailing in the first quarter or at halftime. No. 6 Denver fell into a 7-5 hole against Villanova at intermission; Bucknell led No. 7 seed Virginia 4-1 by the end of the first quarter; and Hartford and Hofstra took leads of 3-1 and 2-0 against No. 2 seed Cornell and No. 3 seed Johns Hopkins, respectively.

Quint Kessenich equates the move to a college football power leaving the SEC. "I don't see any positive for the lacrosse program," the ESPN analyst says of the University of Maryland's jump to the Big Ten Conference. "You're talking about the potential of severing rivalries with North Carolina, Duke, Virginia. " In leaving the ACC for the Big Ten, Maryland's football and basketball teams will trade one set of big-time opponents for another. But the picture is murkier in lacrosse, perhaps the university's third signature sport.

The cliché goes that defense wins championships. But even the stingiest defense must be complemented by a productive offense. That's where the attackmen come in, the guys in charge of generating scoring opportunities and delighting fans with their wizardry. Four of Division I's top attackmen will congregate at M&T Bank Stadium on Saturday to participate in the fifth-annual Face-Off Classic. The prototype At 5 feet, 10 inches and 180 pounds, Rob Pannell doesn't boast tremendous size for No. 13 Cornell, but the junior's speed and creativity have him widely regarded as a leading candidate to capture the Tewaaraton Award, which is awarded annually to collegiate lacrosse's top player.

The Johns Hopkins men's lacrosse team's move to the Big Ten as the conference's first affiliate member in any sport was assisted by the program's biggest rival. Maryland, which has battled the Blue Jays 110 times, proposed to the Big Ten that the conference reach out to Johns Hopkins shortly after the Terps and Rutgers announced that they were joining the league after leaving the Atlantic Coast Conference and Big East, respectively. “The people at Maryland were the ones that suggested this to us, and immediately, the light went off because of the academic standing of Johns Hopkins and because of the standing of their lacrosse program and the location of the university and the fact that we're going to be in this region for decades,” Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany said at a Monday morning news conference at the Blue Jays' Cordish Lacrosse Center.

In 31 days, two teams will meet in Philadelphia for the men's lacrosse national championship. Who that will be is anyone's guess. With unparalleled parity in the sport, the race is wide-open. This weekend, the best slate of the season, will go a long way toward winnowing the field. Some teams, such as Johns Hopkins and Colgate, need a win to keep their NCAA tournament hopes alive. Others, like defending national champion Loyola and Syracuse, want to burnish their resume. These seven games will go a long way toward deciding who will have a shot at Championship Weekend.

ESPN analyst Quint Kessenich participated in a Q&A on Monday . The former Johns Hopkins All-American goalkeeper, who can be followed on Twitter via @QKessenich, also addressed a few questions about No. 6 Maryland, No. 8 Loyola, No. 13 Johns Hopkins, Towson and UMBC: How concerned should Maryland be with an offense that has averaged just 8.0 goals in its last four contests? They've been coasting. Only eight against Carolina, nine against Virginia, 11 against Navy and then only four against Johns Hopkins.

Here is his breakdown of Notre Dame senior Scott Rodgers, Princeton sophomore Tyler Fiorito and Maryland senior Brian Phipps. Scott Rodgers, Notre Dame Strength : "Rodgers is a physical beast between the pipes like we've never seen before, and to combine that height [6 feet 4, 254 pounds] with an athletic skill set like he has is just absurd.

There are just 67 days until the national championship game on Memorial Day. In real life, that's a blink of an eye. But for teams with an eye on the prize, 67 days can seem like an eternity. 2011 has been an unpredictable season. There are only two undefeated teams in Division I lacrosse. In 67 days, we will have answers to 10 pending questions. 1. Can Virginia's defense play well enough to win a national title? The Cavs' offense is the nation's top-rated unit, averaging 14.3 goals per game behind Steele Stanwick , Chris Bocklet, Shamel Bratton and Colin Briggs.
